    The Little Drummer Boy The Little Drummer Boy
    A flippant, beautiful, serious meditation on Christmas. I created a new tradition on the old by playing Sufjan at family Xmas every few years. I love the vinyls, the long history. Magnificent.

    a priori priority ft mars bremen a priori priority ft mars bremen
    Self-made men, in a real true sense, Ruby Yacht is making itself known as anti-elite, niche brand made without the man. Scallops Hotel is real estate in an imaginary place you can believe in.

    00:00/00:00
    too much of life is mood too much of life is mood
    I must have listened to this album start-to-finish in the triple digits by now. scallops hotel is such an odd offshoot; rendered in lofi, glitch beats dominate & it's not so much about rap anymore as it is about sensational experience. I feel something new, each listen.
